Are They There Through Ups AND Downs?
In my last post, I wrote about finding out I was pregnant for the second time.I had high hopes that this time it would be ok. Unfortunatly earlier this month my husband and I suffered yet another loss.
Telling those who had so much hope for us this time was a difficult task. But I have seen in the weeks following our loss and my recovery who is really there supporting me and my husband.
Often times people take things too lightly. Saying things like, "It was for the best" and "It will happen when it's supposed to happen" isn't comforting at all. It's hard for people to comprehend and understand if they've never been through the exact same situation, I can understand that. But it's not hard when you ginuinly care about the person(s) who are going through difficult situations.
Gestures from the heart during times of bereavement or sickness don't have to be large at all. A phone call, a hug, or just coming by the persons house to say hi or asking then to the park or just to get out of the house when they're feeling up to it can mean ALOT.
We received love and caring gestures from friends and family who really understood our deep upset.
But it was clearer this time who true friends are and who is ginuinly pulling for us and praying for us.
What about your friends and family? Are they there with you through good and bad? Do you know who your TRUE support system is? If not, just like I found out, you'll see during bad times for sure.
